Tesla Model S Plaid debuts
Tesla claims the Model S Plaid is the world’s quickest car and that the $129,990 sedan can accelerate to 60 mph in less than two seconds.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reached out to Tesla to discuss a new feature available in its cars that allows passengers to play certain videogames on the central touchscreen display while the car is in drive.

Tesla’s infotainment system can play games and videos.

The capability became available earlier this year and was demonstrated by owners in numerous YouTube videos before being highlighted in a New York Times article published on Tuesday.
Tesla has not commented on the issue, but NHTSA issued a statement that said in part:

The latest Model S has an entertainment screen for the rear seat passengers.

“Safety is central to NHTSA’s mission and we are committed to improving safety for all road users. Distraction-affected crashes are a concern, particularly in vehicles equipped with an array of convenience technologies such as entertainment screens. We are aware of driver concerns and are discussing the feature with the manufacturer. The Vehicle Safety Act prohibits manufacturers from selling vehicles with design defects posing unreasonable risks to safety.”
NHTSA pointed out that “The Vehicle Safety Act prohibits manufacturers from selling vehicles with design defects posing unreasonable risks to safety,” and that it issued recommendations in 2013 that in-vehicle devices with secondary features should be designed to prevent the driver from using them while driving.
